notice anything different? as you can see, the dpns had to be called in after one too many twisty magic loop maneuvers last night. I couldn't stand trying to figure out which way to twist the needles to get the cord to go straight any longer and decided it was time sanity made a showing at the sock party. and it feels so very nice. and I am really enjoying this knit! who'da thunk socks would be so fun?
this hasn't prevented me from dropping yo's, tho. both times I've done it so far, it's taken me much too long to figure out what happened. but things are looking good so far. this is 3 repeats. I think once I get two more in, we're going to be ready for some heel action. I'm happy to report that things are moving quicker than I'd thought they would and it doesn't seem so unattainable of a goal to finish these by next weekend anymore. (I'll stop myself here, though, before I get too cocky.)
I've also been getting a little nutty with the yarn buying online these last few days. I've been trying to find a good deal on some more artyarns supermerino so I can begin building my army of yarn-men (starting with their feet, of course). I found some here. and she offers 10% when you join the mailing list! (although, I've come to realize that mailing lists are bad bad things. it's like the store's way of saying "hi there! we're ready to take your money now! just click here!") plus, she's super nice and can even special order colors she doesn't have on the site. and, besides that order, I've got a couple others on their way. when everyone gets here, I'll be sure to gather them together for a group shot. say cheese!
ps. blogger is driving me crazy - not so much blog, but a whole lot of grrr...
